Overall Satisfaction with Microsoft Visio

Microsoft Visio is used to create process maps in my organization. It is used in whole organization, across pretty much all engineering and business departments. I used it during analyzing the production process, carrying out change analysis by inspecting a before-after situation. It is frequently used in production process mapping but it is also used in business process mapping, too. That shows how business is carried out across various departments. This becomes a must when an organization is huge.
  • Process mapping
  • Intuitive interface
  • Reporting
  • Node connection facilities
  • Business Process mapping
  • Production Process mapping
  • ARIS Business Process Management (BPM)
Visio is much easier to use with no training/education required to use/operate it. It has the same interface with any MS Office application which contributes to its ease of use. If the business need is not very sophisticated, that organization is not after process management with library and mining capabilities, Visio is the one to go. Visio's flexibility of a node library is vast, too.
Because it is part of Microsoft Office's applications, it has a vast community and documentation. For any problem you come across, there is already a question asked in community forums, hubs, and official website. Even if there is not, fast response is provided by the community immediately. There is a Frequently Asked Questions section in the original website, too. Therefore Visio has very high support rate.

ARIS Business Process Management (BPM), ARIS Process Mining
Visio is great for process mapping, whether it is production or business process across departments, with its ease of use, and intuitive interface that comes from Microsoft Office and options of nodes that can be searched in the bar on the left. Even a fresh intern can start drawing immediately. However if one needs detailed process mapping, with many kinds of connections and a standard library, as well as detailed data-mining kind of reporting, Visio will not be sufficient.
